Join us for our first ever, local-crag climbing festival! On Saturday, September 23rd, come out and support your community's local climbing organizations, CRAGS and the Access Fund, along with other local non-profits during our breakfast meet and greet. Fuel up with a lunch spread before hopping into our climbing clinics and classes* including multi-pitch efficiency with Black Diamond sponsored athlete, Brittany Griffith! Don't forget to demo some of Black Diamond's gear including their all-new climbing shoe, debuting this fall. When you're finally pumped from a full day of climbing and exploring the area, finish off the night with a catered dinner, local brews from Crooked Lane, and the latest No Man's Land Film Festival screening. We'll also be running a raffle with proceeds going to CRAGS with a chance to win a full set of lightweight cams from Black Diamond and other awesome prizes. The following day, CRAGS will even be running a small stewardship event to help clean-up and improve the quarry for us to enjoy for the future. Parking is extremely limited at the Auburn Quarry. Complimentary parking will be provided by Auburn Area Recreation and Park District (ARD) at American Parkway Canyon Overlook Park. We will be running a shuttle service throughout the day to the quarry and back.
